    I was wondering how many others model the old ERIE with the black & yellow paint scheme.

    Atlas and Lifelike have been the major supporters of Erie equipment.

    Erie stuff is hard to come by but so far I have:
    (In classic Erie black & yellow)

    Erie RS-3 (929) Atlas
    Erie RS-3 (1012) Atlas
    Erie GP-7 (1218) Atlas
    Erie GP-7 (1225) Atlas
    Erie FA1/FB1 (725) Lifelike (2-sets so I can run a 4-unit lashup.
    Erie FA1/FB1 (729) Lifelike (2-sets)
    Erie FA2/FB2 (737) Lifelike (2-sets)
    Erie FTA/FTB (702) Intermountain
    Erie FTA/FTB (703) Intermountain
    Erie PA-1 (853) Lifelike
    Erie PA-1 (857) Lifelike

    (In Erie two-tone green)
    Erie E8A (824) Lifelike
    Erie E8A (827) Lifelike
    Erie PA1 (854) Con Cor
    Erie PA1 (855) Con Cor

    I'd like to see a few more diesels availble in Erie livery.

    Switchers, EMD F3 and EMD F7 for starters.

    Wasn't there someone on here who had a real nicely detailed small Erie layout?

    I believe they modeled Erie steam.

    If I remember correctly it was maybe last year.

    Chris, lots of nice photos.

    I really like that shot #10 of the 4-unit Alco F unit lash-up.

    Those Lifelike FA1/FB1's are great runners. Do you have enough cars to slow them down? Thats a lot of power.

    I also like your draw bar to decrease the distance between the locos.
